Navigating Rough Seas
A 'How-to' Post
The internet is a noisy place.
There’s a sea of information at our fingertips, but its difficult to surf through it and figure out what information is more valuable to us and what is not.
That is where we, at the Wisdom Project, come in.
Our endeavour is to sift through the noise of the internet and bring out the best from the millions of creators producing incredible stuff every minute.
We are continuously looking for pearls of wisdom that we can share with You, our reader.
We want to use these nuggets to build our path towards a life of health, wealth and most of all, wisdom.
As we have talked about in our intro post, there is no exact map of the path to wisdom. There is a just a compass that points in a certain direction at every step. That is all we have, a sense of the right direction where we are supposed to go with this, not the whole path. We want to discover it together with all of you.
But when it comes to navigating rough seas such as the internet, having just a compass is not enough.
You need other tools as well.
And that is what we want to share today.
Over the last 13 weeks of doing this project we have realised that the weekly wisdom letters will not be of a lot of use to the readers if they are not equipped to process the recommendations within them.
So we want to share the best tools that we think would help the readers learn from the recommendations in the best possible way.
The kind of content we share lies in roughly 4 broad categories
Purchasing a book, or watching a long video or listening to a 40 minute podcast or reading a 30 minute long article will not happen as you come across its link in the newsletter.
It requires that you have a set time for reading articles and books, watching videos and listening to podcasts - And that time may not be 8 AM on Sunday morning.
We recommend that you spread your consumption through the week.
One way to do that is to keep coming back to the newsletter through the week. A better, more efficient way to do it is to save the content we recommend on your smartphone apps and consume it at your own pace.
To save articles/blogs or any sort of links, “Pocket” is an excellent app. It can download long form articles on your phone for offline reading as well. Check it out —
For Podcasts, you can install any podcast app on your phone, add the recommended shows to your playlist and listen later during a commute or a workout.
Google Podcasts :
Apple Podcasts on iOS :
For Books we recommend creating an Amazon wishlist that you can add to, and buy books whenever you are looking for your next read.
For YouTube videos, its best to create separate watchlist and add videos into it and watch later at your convenience.
We have made public lists of all the content we share for ready reference.
Books as Amazon Public Wishlist
Articles as Pocket Recommendations
Videos as YouTube Playlist
We will keep updating these lists every week as we recommend more stuff, and we will include these lists at the bottom of every week’s wisdom letter as well.
With these tools in your toolbox, we hope you are fully equipped to navigate the rough seas of the internet.
